Please, share your view on the cut throat competition (capitalism) for exploiting natural resources and climate change scenario. Lets explore the practices of rational use of resources and conservation.
Relevant answer
Answer
Thank you Dear Wilhelm Pieter Nel for this relevant post.
Indeed we have to consider all the issues you raised.
I recently attended restitution of research work carried out within the framework of consortia of research teams including Tunisian teams on the impacts of climate change on water resources. One of the themes is the effects of climate change on groundwater recharge. An interesting subject you might say but, in my opinion, surreal if one considers the catastrophic situation of the state of exploitation and degradation of water resources in the countries of the southern Mediterranean. I cite the Tunisian example and we can transpose: Most of the groundwater is subject to disastrous overexploitation leading to drawdowns and irreversible degradation of resources. Some aquifers are exploited at more than 250% of the average recharge rate and the oases of the South draw on very weakly renewable “fossil” aquifers to produce dates sold at prices ranging between $ 1 and $ 3 (approximately 8 m3 of water are required to produce 1 kg of dates) [1]. Coastal aquifers in the Cap-Bon region are stressed to such an extent that marine intrusion has, in some cases, resulted in the definitive degradation of the resource. These waters are used in the production of citrus fruits sold at less than $ 1 per kg. If the decision-makers and the scientific community do not put urgently all their human and material resources and all the scientific and technical means, to solve this nagging problem; well, the time needed to define and put in place measures of resilience and adaptation to the hypothetical effects of climate change on groundwater recharge will be more than enough for the squandering of these resources to be total and definitive as it is already the case of certain coastal aquifers.

I synthesized gold nanoparticles by using natural resources as a reducing agent. However, I keep getting heterogeneous solutions instead of homogenous solutions. I am conducting a green-synthesized study through a biological approach, so the use of any chemicals as stabilizers would be inappropriate for the objective of the study. How do I minimize the aggregation without using any chemicals?

An economic evaluation of the natural capital is essential to understand its loss for human developmental activities.
Moreover, valuation methods have always underestimated the economic costs associated with natural resources. Nevertheless, they at least provide a vision for policymakers to decide development against conservation.

Scholarship is important for professional growth in any academic field. For this reason, it is imperative to publish your academic work with reputable journals and publishers to share your findings with academic world for visibility of the discoveries and innovations, integration into the present work and to provide baseline information for applications in future related studies and teaching of freshmen. Publication is the first step of scholarship, which involves dissemination of new knowledge to add on the existing knowledge addressing an important problem, and is a requirement for all postgraduate students to complete a scholarly program. Although peer-reviewed and peer revised publications can be derived from a master’s thesis based on an independent research project, it is not practical and rarely possible to include detailed information on the study.
Several accredited and indexed journals and publishers already exist, such as Springer Velag, Elsevier & Wiley. Unfortunately, only few journals and publishers accept a master's thesis for publication and most theses at this level are archived in the university repositories. Nevertheless, some master's theses are based on novel ideas which can attract high scientific and policy interests in food and energy production, conservation of natural resources and technological advancements which makes them worth of consumption.
My concerns are:
1. Is it necessary to publish a master's thesis, whether as a book, independent article or whichever format?
2. What are the reputable journals and publishers for publishing a master's thesis (especially in the domain of life sciences and natural resources). If possible you can provide a link to those journals and publishers.
3. Can publication of a masters thesis improve the scholarly impact of the author?
Relevant answer
Answer
Publishing MA/MSc Theses on high impact journals or some other links that have high recognition has a great impact on the contributions that the authors have on the existing body of knowledge in their respective areas of specializations. Besides, publishing one's thesis on a reputable journal may widen the opportunity of getting high paying job.

The pro-environmental transformation of the traditional classical economy should be aimed at the development of both a sustainable blue economy and a green, zero-emission circular economy. Aquatic environments, including oceanic and marine, are related to terrestrial environments. Pollution of some environments also affects others.

Isolation of new compounds from plants and natural resources is a considerable target to find something new and relevant.
But, what is the main intention of isolating compounds already known and isolated?
Relevant answer
Answer
Alexander Sinko Good question!
In natural products research, we usually perform Bioactivity-guided isolation of compounds from natural sources like plants. Here, at first, we screen for bioactivity in a plant and if found potential then look for the individual compounds responsible for the activity and here comes the necessity of isolation of compounds. Till this point we don't know which compound is showing the bioactivity, we might only have idea about possible compounds from the literature of the previous works. In order to identify & characterize a compound, we first need to isolate it without knowing if it's known or novel.
Furthermore, someone may find a compound inactive for a particular activity, while another may find it highly potent for other biological role.
A sufficient literature review before selecting a plant for research usually leads to some novel compounds or at least known compounds with novel activities.
Hope you got what you were looking for.

According to the main question "How to strike a balance between economic concerns and environmental sustainability concerns? " I would add to the developed discussion that "environmental sustainability" is considered as a common sharing asset, no a marketable commodity; whereas "economic concerns" are targeting in private ownership and profitability. The inevitable conflicts arise they could be better approached and resolved through the conceptualization of circular economy (CE) and ecosystem services valuation (ESV). However, the extend and the ways under which such a conceptualization can impact on everyday practice, they are eventually human-induced and social-driven.

Question

For many years, the consumption of clean water and minerals of energy resources and strategic industrial raw materials, such as metal ores necessary for various branches of the manufacturing industry, have been growing at a faster rate. On the other hand, the pollution of the natural environment grows, the degradation of the natural environment through mines extracting energy minerals. The amount of waste on dumps of unsorted municipal waste is growing, as well as litter that pollutes the natural environment. More and more plastic waste floats in the seas and oceans. The scale of degradation of the natural environment through the development of human civilizations is increasing.
The goal of counteracting these unfavorable processes of human civilizational activity is to carry out pro-ecological reforms in the energy sector consisting in the transformation of the classical energy based on the burning of minerals for the construction of new power plants producing renewable energy. Reforming the energy sector is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the increasingly rapid global warming process. It is necessary to develop eco-innovations thanks to which plastic in packaging will be replaced with quickly biodegradable and / or consumable materials. Waste segregation systems and electromobility should be improved. More funds from public funds of the state should be allocated for the implementation of pro-ecological reforms of reclamation of a degraded civilization environment and the implementation of nature conservation programs, natural ecosystems and biodiversity.
However, all those ecological ones necessary to carry out the reform will not ensure achieving in a global perspective fully sustainable pro-ecological development if in subsequent years the consumption of natural resources, especially water and earth's energy and other minerals indispensable for various branches of the production industry. Therefore, in order for the implementation of fully sustainable ecological development to be possible in the future, the increase in the exploitation of natural resources, especially non-renewable natural resources, should be significantly reduced.
Do you agree with my opinion on this matter?
Therefore, I am asking you the following questions:
- How should the use of unrecognized natural resources be reduced so that sustainable ecological development is possible?
- Is it necessary to pursue a model of zero economic growth?
- Should the implementation of the zero-growth model be mainly based on reducing the consumption of natural resources?
- How should the use of non-renewable natural resources be reduced so that sustainable ecological development is possible?
- Will the protection of nature, natural ecosystems and biodiversity significantly increase by reducing the use of non-renewable natural resources?

And that work is even more area intensive than just 10 sq km. But no I did not find it either miserable or dangerous. Animals are only dangerous if you do not know how to treat them right or behave correctly. The only incident I had with a bear happened years later during biological fieldwork, a female bear that growled at me. I acted less sensibly by not backing off, since I did not wish to come back another day. So the circumstances of this incidence was just because I did not act the way I were supposed to - and in a standoff that lasted a few minutes she backed off anyway. In 99% of all bear encounters they move away as fast as they can. This including one female bear who had two cubs, and I accidentally came over a ridge and got very close. Her main interest was to send the cubs away, and she did pay no attention to me more than a quick look to see what I were doing. The idea that bears with cubs attack humans is due to the extremely stupid behavior of persons who wish to touch her offspring. And that they can be found alone do not mean they're abandoned, she is often close and might even be watching.

I'm currently working on development of indicators mixing sustainability and economy....so my question is the following:
Is the costs of resources are only affected by the market volatility of supply/demand, or it is more linked to the resource's depletion ?
If not, what could be the other indicators (global politics...) that could impact the resource price ?

Rising costs could be due to many factors. Apart from volatility and supply -demand imbalance ,the reasons could range from political , trade agreements between few countries at the cost of others and calamities(Covid-19). Single source supplier could also create havoc in manipulating prices. As regards resource depletion, it is not as if it happens within a short period. The industries are all well informed about the availability of raw materials and accordingly are working on newer technologies so as to reduce dependence on the depleting resources. In fact tech disruptions have become so common that new products with better features at less cost are replacing the existing ones.

The biologically rich wetlands ecosystem is rapidly declining around the globe. Community involvement in the conservation of valuable wetlands biodiversity is regarded as the best model for its sustainability. The objective of this model is to benefits both the local community as well as native species. The managerial community shows special attention when it comes to taking benefits from income-generating activities (IGA) in or around wetlands while less interest in conservation. We are in a situation where we can't leave the wetland ecosystem untouched as there is no meaning of conservation when no people get benefited. Involving people in conservation and allowing income-generating activities may bring changes to the originality of the ecosystem. So, what I want to be clear at is whether there any mechanism to check its originality. Up to which range it is allowed to make the change so that it can be reversed to its natural stage. To which extent the natural ecosystem and human activities go together. How to know in the long run the ecosystem still possesses its natural characteristics, human activities won't dominant the natural ecosystem? In my view, humans rapidly invasive over the natural ecosystem in the past, the ecosystem is enormously huge so, the changes seem insignificant and effects rarely observed. But now, human activities already outnumbered the natural ecosystem and still depends on natural resources. People appears of two kinds one group so-called educated and wise forced on conservation while another group still needs to depend on natural resources for livelihood. To control haphazard extraction their forms various laws that reduce the rate of extraction but still sooner or later, the naturality would lose. The problem is nowhere in nature but on humans. The source of every problem is the human population. Neither resource demand decline nor human lifestyle changes. It starts with a natural wetland ecosystem and ends with human nature. Give your views on this!

According to an article in today's Physics World, climate scientists predict that we will be experiencing worldwide drought due to the 1 degree C. rise in global warming each year. Specifically, this means that, already nobody has been paying attention to climate scientists and others who are sounding the alarm that human society is going to pay a price for maintaining lifestyles like frequently flying on commercial jetliners and aiming for three-car per family car ownership and other fossil fuel burning activities. Thus, there will be a worldwide drought that will result in a 50% decline in wheat production worldwide. We will not be able to continue eating 4 to 6 slices of bread as recommended by USA nutritionists, but, at best, be reduced to eating only 2 to 3 slices of bread per day.

Natural resources are diminishing rapidly due to highly increasing rate of population. To save the environment it is highly recommended to control the growth of population. Please suggest, which types of steps are required?
Relevant answer
Answer
Good day. A number of factors influence the demand for natural resources which include both renewable and non-renewable natural resources. Because I have a mining background I will rather focus on non-renewable resources such as mineral commodities. The increasing demand for minerals raise at least 2 major concerns namely whether there will be enough of it left for future generations (at affordable prices) and its impact on the environment as more of it is mined and at lower grades.
Population is one of a number of factors that affect the demand for minerals - others include increased urbanization,  affluence, consumerism and materialism. This means that certain groups (e.g. the wealthy) and nations use much more natural resources per capita than others (e.g. the poor).
I think it is therefore important to note that restricting population growth is only one of many potential (partial) solutions - many parents do not even agree with this given the number of children they have despite contraceptives been available. So maybe you will have to convince (or educate) them that you are right.
Best wishes with your research.

Answer
HELLO
THANK YOU MUCH DISCUSSION ENOUGH IMPORATNT BRAVO FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS
A natural resource is described as non-renewable or exhaustible when its speed of destruction exceeds, largely or not, its speed of creation.
On the contrary, we speak of a renewable resource when their production is possible over a short period of time.
Renewable energy is energy that enjoys natural and rapid renewal, unlike non-renewable energies that are available in limited quantities.
But the question that arises.
What's stopping us from using renewable energy sources? The main reason is that, until recently, the production costs of these energies were much higher than those of fossil fuels. In addition, renewable energy sources are not constant: imagine, for example, that the wind suddenly falls or that clouds cover the sun. Optimal exploitation of these sources would also require the construction of facilities in remote areas, whose connection to the main network would be both expensive and difficult. However, the situation is changing rapidly. Policies put in place have increased the demand for renewable energy sources worldwide, leading to a rapid reduction in their production costs. Given the increase in the price of gas and oil in recent years and the initiatives taken by governments, there is no doubt that renewable energy sources have a bright future ahead of them.

Intelligence is the ability of individuals to adapt to the newly emerging situation. Previous experiences have a major role in making decisions on how to adapt to the situation. People who grow up in an environment that trains them to be obedient and always go on a safe path thus act in a newly created situation. However, people who grow up in an environment that encourages them to research, calculate risk, research in order to find new solutions are exactly what they are doing in a newly created situation.
I believe that the level of acceptance of innovation is not influenced by the existing level of technology implementation, but by the usual patterns of behavior. This is precisely demonstrated by the fact that new technological solutions are rapidly accepted in developing economies because individuals in these economies have been taught to look for new, better-quality solutions.

Due to human inclination to attractive products and as the product cover comes first, its obvious for marketers to put detailed efforts and resources for designing and making the covers and packaging. And ultimately natural resources (scarce) got stuck in the form of harmful wastes once the product is unveiled. In most of the cases the packaging seems unnecessary and extremely elaborated and decorated made up of harmful and toxic materials.
How could we just stop and help the economy use natural resources judiciously and in a sustainable manner? Are consumers in favour of Sustainability?

It may only be a partial solution to the packaging problem as presented in the original question but if plastics were replaced by some biodegradable material a significant progress could be made. It shouldn't be difficult to find specific materials instead of plastics maintaining most if not all the characteristics. From the point of view of safety such material could possibly offer a significant improvement.
